Photos: Hotel de Ville on the day of Chinese New Year Parade

It is the year of the serpent according to the Chinese calendar. During the Chinese New Year, there is a big parade in the China Town. I was surprised to find a parade in the heart of Paris for this event. The main parade is a week away in the Chinatown. This one was a smaller parade originating from the city hall ore Hotel de Ville. On the day of the parade, there were red lanterns hoisted in front of the city hall.
